I’ll start this with the complete opposite of what I want to say: I’m not so much into The Kooks. The songs of past albums were good, but the albums themselves, except for the 2006 album, weren’t that great.
But this thing is unbefuckinglievable good.
It starts with a big bang. The suspense curve is killing me. See Me Now is the most heartbreaking song I’ve heard in a while. At no time it becomes boring. All pieces fit into another. The end with its gospel-like style is perfect. Everything here is perfect from top to bottom.
2014 was a good year for music. So many releases were milestones of the artists. However, this tops everything without a single doubt.
